Understand signlaugauge
21 April 2004 | by tomsaywer1See all my reviews

Good film that was done in sign, make-up was a downfall to the movie but understandig that this was the directors first film on his own. I can understand some of the mistakes. Visually the movie is shot in black and white giving this picture a classic look. For a fist time film, I have to give this picture a 10 for sheer attempt at something new, since this is the first film ever shot in american sign. The film from I understand is in the New York Film Institute. They reconized this picture as do most of the hearing-impaired culture as the first film in american sign, try to find a copy at SignScopePictures.com, I heard that a 30th annivesary ed. will be comming out later this year or next year.
